Three local businesses are generating some exciting buzz.

Paddy Malone’s Irish Pub located in Mid-Missouri.

Missouri’s oldest, continually operating tavern, Paddy Malone’s Irish Pub, has been family-owned and operated by Allen and Marilee Tatman for 23 years with uncle Tommy and crew in the kitchen providing the finest pub cuisine in Mid-Missouri. Offering pub favorites, properly poured pints of Guinness, 15 other drafts, and a vast selection of spirits in a 160-year-old building, Paddy Malone’s is a capital city destination not to be missed.

“What I love about this pub is that it is truly a public house and has been for more than a century and a half. We have a community of patrons, wonderful staff, and the privilege to be stewards of this wonderful place. So come home to Paddy Malone’s. We’ll have a pint waiting for you.”
